You need to add the icc profile into Local disk C, windows,system32,spool,drivers,color. Then go to start and type in "color management" and make sure you have ticked the box that says "use my settings for this device". Then click add and add the profile you are trying to use. Restart the computer, open mcw, give windows a couple of minutes and it should ,
you can tell in mcw that the icc profile is loaded because the curve will be different from the default curve ie; not straight and with a tiny bit of color. Once it's loaded name the profile in mcw and click save, then select it in mcw from the drop down box and click "force persistent profile" and load it. All done. Let me know how you go.
sorry for being overly nervous mate, no offense.
i have not tested your guide yet due to being at work, but will do when i come home. i have however used MCW before and there's something that doesn't add up from your guide.
are you saying that MCW should magically pick up the ICC profile by itself? as far as i know, you have to calibrate the screen with MCW in order to get a profile created, which you then can save and have persistent. please correct me, if i'm wrong.
in the past, i have used the MCW in the following way:
2. run, calibrate display
3. save the profile and select it from the pulldown menu, check persistent and load at windows start.
it works on desktop, but gets ignored in a FULLSCREEN game, i.e. planetside 2, guild wars 2. if you have said games, you can easily check this by toggling windowed fullscreen and fullscreen in the game options. windowed fullscreen keeps the ICC/MCW profile (but introduces screen tearing, thus making it unusable for me), but the fullscreen ignores the profile. it is clearly noticeable in the color shift when toggling the game options between windowed fullscreen and fullscreen.
hope i made my point clear. anyhow, i will test your guide point by point tonight, even though i highly doubt that MCW will pick up the ICC profile by itself, just by "waiting a couple of minutes".
edit: i have bolded the part in your quote that doesn't make sense to me. it should what? pick the profile up by itself? Edited by skuko - 12/4/13 at 12:53am
